On Saturday, August 31, 2013, we took Lane to his first UT football game. He had been to a tailgate last season, but we hadn't been brave enough to take him to the real game yet! We decided the first game of the season would be a good one. Luckily, Kyle was offered suite tickets from his work, so we were spoiled! We had a parking pass, which allowed us to park right by the stadium, and enjoyed the game in the AC with food and drinks a plenty!
Before the game we hung out at the Alumni Center for a bit. It was hot and muggy, so I was glad we were headed for a nice cool suite!
Lane mostly wanted to climb on this statue family. Safe? No.
Loving on the mother. Made me laugh so hard!
Reading a story with Mama Statue.
He has perfected his "hook 'em horns" sign!
We headed up to the suite a little before game time and enjoyed some fajitas and dessert. It was nice that it was so kid-friendly.
Lane actually sat and watched most of the first half with me. Kyle kept having to "mingle," so Lane and I had some mother-son bonding time.
I love this shot! He got into the band songs and would cheer when the jumbo-tron said to! He also joined in to "The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You."
Lane lasted until about the end of the 3rd quarter, so we called it a night. It was a really fun time! I definitely got spoiled and probably won't want to go to any more games unless it involves a suite. ;-)
I will also add that the Longhorns ended up winning the game. It could very well be the only game they win this season with the way they have been playing since!
